Autocab is a technology business supplying software as a service (SaaS) solutions, primarily to the private hire and taxi industry. Its booking and dispatch technology processes more than one million ‘trips’ around the world each day, Autocab is also building relationships with OEMs, vehicle rental hire companies and other B2B industries as part of its Transportation as a Service offering. The company was established in 1991 to commercialise a hardware-based booking and dispatch system – which was developed by computer scientist Dr Falah Abod to help his friends in the taxi industry. The business, based in Cheadle, Stockport, has since evolved into a SaaS business that is providing local taxi firms with the technology required to meet the demands of the next generation of travellers. It has continued to gain recognition for its technology, winning awards in multiple categories at the Prolific North Tech Awards 2020 – for ‘Best Application of Tech – Transport’, ‘SaaS Company of the Year’ and ‘Tech Company of the Year – Medium.’ A family-owned business, led by Safa Alkateb and nephew Hassan Abod, Autocab currently has 140 employees and operates in over 30 countries around the world.
